MPI St. Louis is proud to partner with a local organization to allow our members the opportunity to give back. At each education program, MPI St. Louis highlights a philanthropy and encourages our members to provide donations to the organization at the event. The list below is a snapshot of the organizations our chapter has supported.

MPI St. Louis was proud to be featured in an article published by MPI International on chapters that give back. To read the article, click here.


There are more than 90,000 students in St. Louis who cannot afford basic school supplies like pencils, paper, and crayons. KidSmart – Tools for Learning helps these children succeed in school by providing free school supplies where teachers shop for their students through KidSmart’s Free Store. Since opening in 2002, KidSmart has distributed more than $20 million in school supplies to more than 45,000 economically disadvantaged children in the area. Please bring “back to school” supplies with you to the first Educational Meeting on September 14 as an in-kind donation to KidSmart.

With the help of MPI St. Louis, KidSmart can paint a bright tomorrow for thousands of St. Louis children in need. Please bring your monetary donations and/or school supplies to the September 9th monthly luncheon at Busch Stadium.
